If you need a good laugh the Hadley Freeman column in the Guardian on Monday is about the various products that Paltrow's company Goop sells. Apparently the candle sells for £58 and, like something called sex dust, which also retails for a similar price, has sold out.

Unless it actually smells of hers, I can't see the appeal.

Not that I'd want one either way. smile

Who would have thought in a million years there would be a market for such a thing??

Emperors new clothes any one??

Sold out!!!! I shan't be able to sniff out a bargain then will I? grin

Gosh it April Fool's day and I hadn't realized grin It must be a joke surely ...How the other half live...wish I had £58 to squander on such trifles, though I must admit if I was squandering such amounts this candle would be pretty low down my list of priorities grin

I'm appalled .. I'm applauding .. But I think the label on the candle should have read My Shit Don't Stink if it was her intention was to capture her essence .. 75 dollars per candle and they're sold out .. to fools ..

Seriously, what do her customers think they are buying?

This isn't far from the medieval habit of buying bones etc., of saints to own something of their icon.

I can hardly believe that anyone would be so foolish as to buy such a thing even for 58p. How weird. Is she utterly bonkers or extremely clever?
Her vaginal steaming has been discredited by medics, as well as scoffed at by the sensible but still people buy her stuff and into her strange ideas. There’s nowt so strange as folk.

Ultimate in bad taste? Or should that be smell?🤔

Juliet27 Fri 17-Jan-20 07:43:00

So does she ‘use’ these candles first??!!

TerriBull Fri 17-Jan-20 08:04:34

I think I read about it in The Times this week, where the comment, was "smells like her vagina, when she's got out of the shower? or when she's done say a 10 mile long hike???" does the candle specify? only it could make all the difference I imagine shock Personally, I'll stick to Neom, or Jo Malone I like my fragrances .............well suffice to say, smelling of something other than an intimate body part!!

Is there no end to what this woman will regale the public with, shame she doesn't stick to acting, she was quite good at it once!

Sounds a bit fishy to me grin fanny old idea

Dinahmo Fri 17-Jan-20 09:35:02

Apparently it's a gorgeous, sexy and beautifully unexpected scent. A mix of geranium, bergamot, cedar, damask rose and ambrette seed - whatever that is. Hadley wrote "Gwynneth sure does spend a lot of time up there to have picked up on all that.

Thank you for your comments ladies, you've given me a good start to the day.

PS there's also the jade eggs (for insertion) that sell for about £60 with a note attached saying that the little hole is for a string and they recommend unwaxed dental floss !!

PPS that made me laugh too, because, apart from anything else, here in France string means a thong!

Thought it rather paltry myself

MissAdventure Fri 17-Jan-20 09:37:24

Gives a whole new meaning to the words "fanny wax'.

westendgirl Fri 17-Jan-20 09:41:20

More money than sense .!

MissAdventure Fri 17-Jan-20 09:48:49

The thing is though, that now, if ever I see one of these candles, I'll have to sniff it.

Luckygirl Fri 17-Jan-20 10:01:55

Reminds me of the woman who made her living selling her worn (as in she has worn them) knickers by mail order for men to sniff. Apparently the demand was so great that she started rubbing a bit of olive oil from a sardine tin on them instead in order to keep up!

Urmstongran Fri 17-Jan-20 10:19:48


I daresay Ms Paltrow is having the last laugh though!

My stomach heaved at this.The woman isn't right in the head !

If the ordinary woman in the street had thought this up she'd be jailed for being a pervert.

TerriBull Fri 17-Jan-20 10:41:31

Although it's all quite funny and can't help thinking Ms Paltow is having a chortle whilst simultaenously making shedloads out of some women's gulibility with what is a complete load of bogus nonsense. Some of her claims about what certain products do have been disproved by doctors and with the warning that they could possibly be harmful in upsetting the delicate balance of the natural state of women's intimate parts. As with, feminine deodrants and other unnecessary products, evidence suggests that the vagina is best left in it's natural state. As an aside, it does seem she is very fixated on her genitals hmm Maybe someone could come up with an alternative website to alleviate her obsession, for a price of course!

TerriBull Fri 17-Jan-20 10:43:25

simultaenously simultaneously

25Avalon Fri 17-Jan-20 10:46:17

Whatever turns you on!

Margs Fri 17-Jan-20 10:58:50


But not half as much as the gullible idiots buying into her "ideology" and throwing money at her gimmicks!

anxiousgran Fri 17-Jan-20 11:10:48

Don’t suppose it will be a sell out! Yes Margs, her gimmicks and ideology are dangerous in some respects as I have read she is an anti vaccinator and can use her celebrity to spread her dangerous views.
